Summer is here and you are ready for some fun in the sun. But, with your busy schedules, you can’t get anywhere for a vacation. Your kids are getting anxious being stuck in the house, and you just need something to do here. What if you have a vacation at home? Here are 3 ideas for the best family swimcation at home.
Playing in the Pool
Nothing says summer vacation like playing in the pool. We’ve all had that vacation where you’ve planned a huge trip, and all the kids want to do is play in the hotel pool. Well, save yourselves the trouble of planning that vacation and bring the fun to your backyard with a swimming pool.
Your backyard is the perfect spot for a swimcation because all ages love playing in the pool. Whether you search for pool toys at the bottom of the water, race across the pool, or have a cannonball contest, you are sure to have endless fun during your swimcation.
Hanging in the Hot Tub
Does your ideal vacation involve relaxing? You’re taking a break from work, so you probably want a way to get rid of all of that stress. This is where the hot tub comes in as part of your swimcation. Hanging in the hot tub is a great family activity. You can start your day off and end your day in the hot tub for ultimate relaxation.
If you’re wondering whether or not your children will enjoy spending time in the hot tub during your swimcation, don’t worry — they will. Hot tubs are often seen as an “adult activity”, especially since a lot of hotel hot tubs have an age limit of 14 and older. So, your kids will jump at the chance to be like their parents (just don’t let them literally jump into the hot tub). And, as an added bonus, spending time in the hot tub will get the kids calmed down and ready for bed before you start the next day of your swimcation. Just keep in mind that young kids don’t regulate temperature as well as older kids and adults do, so they can’t spend as much time in the hot tub as you can.
Get the Best of Both Worlds
Are you intrigued by both the idea of a swimming pool and a hot tub for your swimcation? Why not get both? You will be able to play pool games and relax in the water. Plus, you’ll be making an investment for decades to come, not just for a vacation that’s over in a week.
